speak chinese like a native

娜路彎 Naruwan

Posted by ernieschatz March 21, 2009 in the Group General Discussion .

Hello. This is regarding the formosan term 'Naruwan' which I think is a greeting that came from the aboriginal Amis people in the eastern part of Taiwan and has since come to mean welcome to Taiwan.

Anyway, when lookin up the Chinese characters I come-up with 娜路彎Na4Lu4Wan1.  I'm wondering if this is a pronunciation that the Taiwanese will understand... or more specifically, if I said 娜路彎大酒店 Na4Lu4Wan1Da4Jiu3Dian4 to a taxi driver, would that be the correct pronunciation for Naruwan Hotel (it's in Taitung) where I often stay when I visit?
